The rockets were one of the best teams in NBA history the first year with CP3. It didn't just work, it was one of the best teams EVER.
what do you reckon? In 20 years some hipster producer is gonna make a 30 for 30 about the team that coulda been, but never was? History books are full of those stories already.
I don't know what you're going on about. They were an all time great team. They just ran into Curry and KD on possibly the best team ever assembled. If I were ranking the best nba teams of all time, that rockets team would be well ahead of half the eventual champions without even a second though. That's success by any reasonable measure.
They had a good run in the RS. They had strong wins in the postseason but not exactly against the elite. They had a tough series against the Warriors, but being up 3-2 is impressive but not even a guarantee of victory. The series came down to a couple of close games.
